Doubtful Sound Wilderness Day Cruise from Manapouri
Start your tour with a short cruise across Lake Manapouri, followed by a drive over the Wilmot Pass, New Zealand’s most expensive road to build. Make stops along the way to experience the dense rain forest of Fiordland National Park and view Doubtful Sound from above. Upon arrival at the water, board your spacious catamaran for the Doubtful Sound cruise. Your naturalist guide shares commentary about the landmarks and wildlife that you might see, including bottlenose dolphins, fur seals, and the rare Fiordland crested penguin. Depending on the conditions, you might even journey as far as the Tasman Sea. Choose from several morning departures for your tour to Doubtful Sound, a gorgeous destination that rivals popular Milford Sound for natural beauty, yet remains less crowded. Non-slip shoes, warm fleece or sweater, waterproof jacket, sun protection, and insect repellent are recommended. Your tour ends with return to Manapouri.
